Difference between bootflash and sup-bootflash

Hi,

I have cat 6509 cat based ios.

I was trying to upgrade it to IOS based to 12.1(13)E4 version.

I have seen the sup-bootflash is 32mb when iam using IOS based version.

and when i switch to cat based IOS i have to use PCMCIA card.

why cannot i use sup-bootflash in cat based IOS.

Mudassir.

Re: Difference between bootflash and sup-bootflash

In Native IOS the bootflash on the supervisor is refered to as sup-bootflash and the bootflash on the MSFC is just bootflash. In CatOS since the SP and RP are configured seperatly the bootflash on the supervisor is just bootflash and the bootflash on the MSFC is still bootflash.

So in CatOS you can use the sup-bootflash it is just called the bootflash.
